Business Economics

The Business Economics degree is excellent for students who are strong in quantitative courses and are considering an MBA program after graduation.

The flexibility of an Economics degree allows you to apply economic analysis to a variety of problems facing individuals, businesses, countries or the entire world. It also serves as an excellent foundation for graduate education in law, business administration or public administration. Banks, financial institutions and government organizations are leading employers of economics graduates. This program allows students to major in Economics and still have a strong business background. Economics is a flexible choice for students seeking a rigorous, well-respected and relevant major without specializing in a narrowly defined area.
